A group of us came here after Wurstkuche. It was a Friday night. We walked over, since it was close by. If you don't know, the entrance is at the back, near the parking lot. The good thing about this place is that there was no lines as well as no cover to get in. The security guard was pretty cool. He seemed a little young. Inside was kind of empty. Dark and empty, like my heart. Haha. Kidding. But it was dark and empty. The music they played... was..so so. It was loud though. The crowd. They seemed like little Asian gangstas. The men, not the women. On the TV screens, they had infomercials playing. What were they selling? BOBS. If you don't know what that is, look it up at urban dictionary.

My first love has to be any chocolate dessert. My second love is fried food. My third love is sushi. Therefore, I am sad at having to give a sushi place anything under 3 stars but it has to be done in fairness to the Rateclub community. Seven of us came to Yoshi's the restaurant for dinner on Saturday because we wanted free admission to Yoshi's the club afterwards. I shared two appetizers (lobster tenpuri, poke), an entree (pork belly), and dessert (caramel tart) with my friend. +1: The lobster tenpuri was filled with lobster and was not overly fried. +1: The poke was well seasoned and came with an avocado-ish sauce, which added depth. -1: Pork belly was meh. Tastewise it was ok but for an entree, they only provided 6 one-inch pieces of pork belly. Sheesh it's not a Costco tasting. -1: For the first time in my life, I left behind dessert at a restaurant. Keep in mind I don't even always toss out Safeway cake but the caramel tart was exactly that bad. Size-wise, they must think they're feeding midgets because I actually overlooked the tart because it was so small; I thought it was a side garnish. On the side there was something only to be described as a melted chocolate gelato on an orange rind. Yuck. -1: Sushi was nothing to warrant $15 per roll. And again, the theme of poor portioning applies here. -1: Two friends ordered from the Dine About Town menu and did not enjoy most of their dinner. The salmon was far too salty. They deliberately left behind food, if that gives you any indication of how bad their dishes were. Service was hit and miss. They were attentive in refilling the water promptly and removing finished place. They were horrible about taking our order and serving food in a timely manner. One member of my party had to wait until after everyone had received all their courses before his food came out. Overall tab without drinks: $34 (keep in mind I shared the plates) Street parking wasn't the most difficult to find. At 10 pm, the restaurant is converted to a club. The plus of eating here is that you're already in the place so no cover. This is especially helpful if promoters are horrible at letting people into the club before the guestlist time cutoff. *cough* Synergy

What's with the bad ratings!? I don't think Jillian's is that horrible.. i mean maybe for the clubbing nights and what not, but it's a great place to hang out for a Sports event, especially with all the TVs they have in the restaurant and bar area. I think the dining room itself had like 8, not sure.. but it seemed like it.. they were playing every basketball game that was available. Too bad the food isn't that great, the burgers were over cooked when asked for medium, but the fries were great...crispy and flavorful. The waitress we had was great, very attentive, and very nice! Cheers for her!
